I can't believe we're already into February! Our family has had a very busy start to the year but hopefully things will slow down at some point. My boss and I left our old company and have gone to a new one, which has been very exhausting but very exciting at the same time. Just a lot of hard work and a little more time away from my family than I'd like. But that's part of it I guess ; )
Caden has been so much fun lately. He's such an energetic little thing, but also the sweetest little boy!! He must hug and kiss everyone and every THING goodbye. This includes all the kids in his class at school as well. Sorry mamas - I'm trying to teach him to kiss cheeks instead of lips. He's a great little cleaner upper - he cleans up all his toys on his own and makes sure they get their hug and kiss too. He absolutely LOVES stickers!! I can't begin to tell you how many he goes through in a day. He is doing so great with his manners. He's really good at saying "please" and is now learning "yes ma'am". I am so proud of this little boy!!
Now don't get me wrong - this child is very strong willed too!! We've gone through the tantrums and hitting phases but they seem to happen a lot less these days (thank God!!) I have found hitting to be one of the hardest things to deal with. I hope you other mamas out there don't have to deal with that. But he has really responded well to consistent discipline and now I can't remember the last time he's hit me! (Knock on wood).
It's so incredibly hard to believe that my baby will be 2 in less than a month.... how is that even possible?! Well....here's to hoping the "2's" aren't so "TERRIBLE"!!
